Spanking inflamation?


Recommended Posts

Hey Ammon! Yes, any external trauma to the body that results in redness, heat, or bruising activates your immune system, which sends out its first responders. These "first responders" are inflammatory cells, which start the healing process. In the medical community this is referred to as acute inflammation. Chronic inflammation is a longer-standing condition in which the body continues sending inflammatory cells long after it should have stopped doing so. A good example of this is rheumatoid arthritis. Causing the body cellular damage from which it must heal (ie. a good paddling) is never ideal. Thankfully, though, the body will recover, and acute inflammation is far less damaging than is chronic inflammation.

Chawsee....that is such a wonderful explanation. You must work in the medical field...perhaps a nurse?  I am an LMT (Licensed Massage Therapist)...and some of my training involved inflamation understanding and helps thru massage therapy. I was trying to think how I could explain it for posting in this thread...but read your post....and felt you did it so very well.

Very kind of you, @nicoleS39. Thank you. I am a former CNA. My aunt was a physician, so I grew up exposed to intelligent medical discussions. And, I've always had a fascination with physiology. It's wonderful that you are a LMT. That is a very honorable profession, and physically demanding work. Thank you for serving people the way that you do.
